Artichoke leaves have been heralded as a vital ingredient in the fight against ageing. It has many other health benefits, but the leaves are an important part of a lot of youth enhancing products. According to Independent.ie, the globe artichoke, cynara scolymus, is the immature flower of a thistle plant and one of the oldest cultivated vegetables in the world. This beautiful plant comes to fruition in summer and, though a little tricky to prepare, is a delight to eat and bursting with goodness.
While artichokes may not be the easiest food to consume, the sheer volume of nutrients, minerals and phytochemicals found in this extraordinary vegetable make eating them well worth it.
Most people’s favourite part of the artichoke is the heart, but the leaves are actually the source of the vast majority of its health benefits. In clinical studies, artichoke leaf extract has been proven to have potent disease-fighting and anti-ageing properties.
Artichokes are packed with phytonutrients such as quercetin, rutin, gallic acid and cynarin, which all help to protect against many health risks including cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, high cholesterol and diabetes.
